MAPPING THE LAYERS OF THE URBAN LIFE IN THE CITY
In order to analyse more in depth the urban life in the centre of Srinagar city, a methodology of urban nodes is used. This methodology identifies the socio-cultural centres and sub-centres of the urban structure in the historical centre of Srinagar.
In this way it is possible to define an urban area like the centre of Srinagar as a collection of centres and sub-centres which are linked together. In the schematic method for mapping the socio-cultural life in Srinagar, these ‘centres’ and ‘subcentres’ are represented by circles and the connections that are linking the different centres to each other are represented by lines connecting two dots.
